Ms. Jenny Harris

As the owner and CEO of American Hydroponics, or AmHydro, she is part of an industry that helps feed people cleanly and efficiently. Hydroponics wasn’t an industry she had planned to enter, but it’s where God led her. Now, it’s where her passion lies.

At Point Loma Nazarene University, Harris double majored in secondary education and business administration. She then worked in the Finance industry. While she was working as a business consultant, the founder of American Hydroponics asked her to join the company as Finance director. Later, Harris bought the business along with a horticulture expert named Scott Kornberg. After the sudden demise of Kornberg, Harris is running the entire business on her own. Harris has been very involved in work serving the homeless through the Betty Kwan Chinn organization; has been a respite foster care provider; and has shared her home with missionaries, foreign exchange students, and youth in need of a place to stay
